Are men are less emotional?There is a saying in Telugu, 'Nave adadani adciche Magovadini namakudadu". This means we must not believe women who laugh and men who cry. We often see that men hardly break down in tears. Is there any scientific reason behind this? The research studies say that men cry less than women because of reasons linked to both nature and nurture. Men have significantly lower levels of prolactin (a hormone found in emotional tears) compared with women. So, the physiological explanation is hormone related. Are men are less emotional and how are they able to hold back their tears? Please share your thoughts!
